Table 4 Prevalence of patients having low BMD (≤1 SD) or at least one prevalent fracture according to 25(OH)D serum levels

From: Bone fragility in sarcoidosis and relationships with calcium metabolism disorders: a cross sectional study on 142 patients

  BMD Fracture
  All patients No BP or Vitamin D All patients No BP or Vitamin D
25OHD <10 20/46 (43%) 8/29 (27%) 8/46 (17%) 2/27 (7%)
10 < 25OHD <20 15/56 (27%) 5/31 (16%) 11/53 (21%) 8/28 (28%)
25OHD >20 20/33 (61%) 4/7 (57%) 13/34 (38%) 2/7 (28%)
  1. BMD, bone mineral density; BP, bisphosphonates. The results are reported for the whole sample and for those patients that had not received BP treatment or vitamin D supplementation.
